This Swimsuit Detail Is All The Rage Now

It’s girly and cool at the same time


You've ogled the hottest celeb bods of the summer; now it's time to show off what you've got.

Ruffles were a huge trend on the Fall/Winter 2015 runways, and they’ve floated onto this season’s most covetable swimwear as well. Not a bad thing: The wavy frills can elevate a plain bikini into a chic two-piece that’s both sporty and feminine.

The typically girly detail has also been given lots of attitude this season, whether it’s framing an asymmetrical monotone one-piece, or translated into an oversized frilly bikini top. Just imagine those sexy off-shoulder flounces emerging from the water – the sea won’t be the only thing making waves at the beach!
